This grower has been at it for nearly forty years. I just had his 2007 Cabernet that I held for years. It was just too good for words to express! Less than 500 cases produced each year as well.
Healthy, wonderful bounty
I could live here, how about you? I'll inquire, perhaps the property is for sale!
The hillsides make for lovely vineyards

It is standard practice to secure date(s) of service within the Wine Tour trade by requiring a credit card to insure dates of service
The needed information includes the name as it appears on the card, complete card number, expiration date security code (3-4 digits), plus the billing address including zip code.
The purpose is to discourage cancellation of services booked whereby other bookings for same date(s) of service would have been turned away, and no longer retrieved as bookable business, not as a way to collect monies from a non performing client unnecessarily.
Please be certain of your needs for services for the dates booked as the company cannot honor refunds outside of the cancellation polices set forth herein.
A six hour minimum (negotiable should there be a need) per day for days one, two & three. The fourth day forward, a four hour minimum
(weekdays only) applies.
Saturdays are the highest demand day of service, so please plan ahead accordingly.
Rates for DD (designated driver) are $55 per hour plus gratuity.
Typically gratuities range from $15-$35 hourly as the level of service offered is of high caliber.
Gratuities are not mandatory but are always greatly appreciated.
A fourteen day cancellation policy applies.
We have never had to enforce this policy, but good business practice dictates the need to have such a policy stated.
One hundred dollars applied per day for itinerary planning that has incurred should a cancellation occur.
Generally itinerary planning is not considered as billable hours, unless the wine tour(s) cancels, and or an excessive amount of time is required in setting or resetting the itinerary.
It's acceptable to change your itinerary, but be mindful that time is a limited, valuable resource.
Discover, American Express, Diner's Club International, JCB,Union Pay credit cards accepted.
Credit card payments are subject to an additional five percent charge to cover bank fees etc.
Buy now buttons may be utilized for both reservations, or to pay in advance for an upcoming wine tour for either Napa Valley or Sonoma.
Also consider the offer through Pay Pal of six months same as cash.
Perhaps this feature will allow being more liberal with the desired number of hours per day, and/or the number of days to indulge.
Having traveled all this way, so may it be suggested, "slow down and smell the grapes."
